Re: George Takei and Politics

He ran for a Los Angeles city council seat in the early 1970s. He didn't drop out of the race; he lost the election. He was later appointed to the Southern California Rapid Transit District board, and cast the tie-breaking vote that got light rail going again in the city during the production of TMP.
